Ma Li Ya Virgin Chicken at Chinatown Complex Market & Food Centre needs no further introduction but, unless you have eaten it before, you would never have guessed that what I had here is a plate of chicken rice because frankly, it does not even remotely resemble one.
Claypot & Cooked Food Kitchen at Chinatown Complex Market & Food Centre specializes in Cantonese-style tze char. The modest menu included their signature claypot pig's liver, har cheong gai, sweet & sour pork, salted fish minced chicken tofu pot, tofu & roasted meat among others.
The black vinegar is more sweet than sour but there is a bottle of vinegar on the counter for customers to help themselves to for a sharper taste. Chef Sham uses the Chan Kong Thye (aka doggy brand) black sweet rice vinegar which he proudly displays all over his stall.
In all honesty, I find this a great bowl of noodle but the small serving for its price is a big deterrent for me to enjoy regularly. As much as I would like to support our local hawkers, this bowl of pork noodle is a luxury to have in this trying period.
Yuan Lang Soy Chicken Master is the underdog among all the big names. Hopefully, they can get picked up by the radar soon and receive the recognition they deserve.
Despite the portion of the rice is not as much as one coming from the Indian stall, or the smaller-sized chicken leg in comparison but for the price ($4), it is good value.
The texture is soft and delicate due to its thin skin.
The soup was slightly on the salty side but I could not penalize them for it because it was due to the tung choi which I added myself.
Their fun-sized roasted pork is very adorable because it is like so short. With equal parts of lean and fats, the texture is enjoyable especially with the biscuit-y crispy skin. I have not had such crispy roasted pork skin for a while now.
I realized I do not enjoy this lor mee as much as I used to. I mean, it is decent but there are better ones out there.
